ABC's of Nail Art Challenge: L is for... Laughter - Sinful Colors Unicorn and Stamping With Mash 31
Today's post is for the Facebook group, Llama Nails. Each week we do a manicure that coincides with each letter of the alphabet. A is for apple, B is for baby, C is for cat, and so on, and so on. This week we are on the letter L. I was going to do love, but the mani that I did, didn't turn out at all like I wanted to. I was going to redo the mani, but we went to a comedy show on Thursday night and it dawned on me, L is for laughter. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to use the Mash 31 plate, and this became the perfect opportunity.
Unicorn is a really pretty light yellow that requires three coats. It is a pretty streaky formula which required the third coat to be a little thicker. The outdoor pictures show Unicorn a little lighter than it is, and the indoor picture shows it darker than it is. The accurate color is in between these.
Base coat: Diamond Strength Hardener
Base color: Unicorn from Sinful Colors - 3 coats
Top coat: Seche Vite (I applied this over Unicorn to dry it quickly so I could stamp over it).
Stamping images: Mash plate 31
Stamping color: Stamp Me! Black from Essence
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insa-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat
